The couple and their four children arrived in Nice on Monday (28.04.08) via private jet, with three nannies and two security guards in tow.

Until they find a home, the family are staying on the French Riviera, at a villa owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.

A source revealed to US TV network E!: “It’s a breathtaking villa with views out over the Mediterranean and they have roughly 12 staff on hand at all times to get them anything they need.

“They love France and will now be here until after the babies are born. Angelina is looking at Marseille hospitals as a potential place to give birth.”

Angelina, who is believed to be due in June, wants to give birth in France as it is the birthplace of her late mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand.

Angelina met Paul Allen – who helped finance DreamWorks film studio – when she voiced a character in the animated hit Shark Tale in 2004.

Brad, Angelina and their three adopted children – Maddox, Pax and Zahara – previously stayed at the villa in 2006 when Angelina was expecting their daughter Shiloh.
